Wolverhampton pub erupts as England beat Colombia

So yes, there was a feeling of catharsis this morning when England finally won a World Cup shootout for the first time.

Four of them were in a particularly ill-disciplined 12-minute second-half spell that included Colombia midfielder Carlos Sanchez wrestling England striker Harry Kane to the ground on a set-piece in the penalty box.

Chris Dowse, 39, who lives on the Kirby Estate in Bermondsey, south London, said television crews would descend on the place, which has been covered with hundreds of St George's Cross flags as well as a few Colombian tricolours.

England's youthfulness combined with decades of soccer pedigree carried them through the Group stage rather effortlessly.

2012. Six major tournaments in 22 years (including the European Championship), and England, brimming with high hopes and big-name players, going out in the cruelest possible way.

Eric Dier scored the winning kick after Jordan Pickford's brilliant save from Carlos Bacca's attempt, with England's first ever World Cup shootout win setting up a meeting with Sweden in Samara on Saturday. He covers all sport from football, formula one, cricket, rugby, tennis, athletics, mma and wrestling. There was still plenty of time for England to respond, but the players looked devoid of ideas and paralysed by fear.

Mina's leveller put the celebrations on hold, but Pickford, who saved two penalties at the Federation Internationale de Football Association U17 World Cup in 2011, had the last laugh in the shoot-out.

'When you look at the teams who have won the World Cup you realise there is always a big goalkeeper in goal. The (Round of 16, Match 8) match between Colombia vs England will be LIVE telecast on Sony Ten 2/Sony Ten 2 HD (English), Sony Ten 3/Sony Ten 3 HD (Hindi) and Sony ESPN (Bengali, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu) TV channels.

"We practised and practised and it paid off", Kieran Trippier, one of the successful penalty takers on Tuesday, said.

Maradona, who captained Argentina to victory at the 1986 World Cup, said he was surprised Geiger had been chosen for the match.

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford helped England end their shootout hoodoo and reach the quarter-finals at the expense of Colombia in Moscow. "I thank God because he allowed me to score another important goal for my country, and I really thought that in the extra time we could win". "We have a lot of virtues contending at the World Cup", the coach said.

England were the better side without looking too risky but were then gifted the lead when Carlos Sanchez hauled down England's captain and talisman Kane once too often. "I felt so confident in the players, even after the first one was saved, because we knew we would save one of theirs".
